All We See is Potential.
It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together they will help build communities able to solve our most entrenched problems.
That’s SVP. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.
Social Venture Partners is an international network of engaged philanthropists who invest time, money, and professional expertise in local non-profits. Our mission is to build the capacity of our investees and strengthen their impact to create sustainable outcomes, and positive social change. Here in Phoenix, we focus on helping nonprofits that increase children, families, & individuals’s resilience to risk factors, and increase children’s ability to succeed academically.
Established in 1999, as the 2nd SVP in the Global Network, SVP Arizona has contributed just above $3.9 million dollars and thousands of volunteer hours to 100+ nonprofits in our desert community. Local success stories include Treasures 4 Teachers, Feeding Matters, Teen Lifeline, and many, many others.
Helping individuals realize greater impact with their giving, building the capacity of nonprofits, solving complex social issues, and investing in collaborative solutions–we make connections that make a difference. Connections that unleash potential.
